The Founder’s Center of Religious Science was designed by the noted architect Paul R. Williams. The auditorium seats 1,500 people in comfortable theatrical-style seats.
The 4-manual, 31-rank Wurlitzer at Founder’s Church is unique for a church installation since it includes extensive percussions, traps, and effects – essentially everything that one would want in a theatre pipe organ. It also features a Trumpet en Chamade that is installed over the lighting booth in the balcony. The instrument was designed by Lyn Larsen, who assisted Ken Crome with the installation. The console came from Chicago’s Norshore Theatre. The organ was donated to the church by Marion Minor Cook in 1984 in memory of her husband, John Brown Cook.

This organ is not owned by LATOS. In 2023, LATOS and Founder's Church entered into an agreement in which LATOS will help to maintain the instrument in return for occasional access. We hope to feature concerts and events at this venue in the future.
